Of course, but I think most of us have been a bit too quick at some time,
and given the number of patches he applies IMO something like that can
happen easily enough.
IMO please complain in response to the "problematic" commit, "standalone"
such discussion IMO can not lead anywhere, since we will end up all
discussing different things...

Is that actually 100% followed? There are some obvious changes (like forgotten const)
where this seems overkill, also at least I sometimes forget to check maintainers and
am a bit surprised (to be honest, in some cases I forgot I wrote the code...)
